Rhakotis is the first place to go for information, reviews and discussion on the history and legacy of Greco-Roman Egypt.
Rhakotis sees the Ancient World as a complex and cosmopolitan space in which various societies intermingled, creating international and local cultures that changed, merged and ruptured over the centuries.
Rhakotis takes it name from the ancient fishing village that Alexandria, the classical city developed from. It retained its ancient name in the Egyptian language. Rather than privileging “Classical” forms, we focus on how Egyptian art and though influences and informed societies beyond the Nile, in the ancient world and today.
